College student kicked out of class for telling professor there are only two genders

A religious studies major was barred from Christianity class at Indiana University of Pennsylvania for saying during class that there are only two genders.

Lake Ingle, a senior at the university, said he was silenced and punished by IUP Professor Alison Downie for questioning her during a Feb. 28 “Christianity 481: Self, Sin, and Salvation” lecture.

After showing a 15-minute TED Talk by transgender ex-pastor Paula Stone Williams discussing the “reality” of “mansplaining,” “sexism from men,” and “male privilege,” the professor asked the women in the class to share their thoughts. When no women in the class said anything, Ingle spoke up, challenging the professor on biology and the gender wage gap. ...

Right you are, Connor. I think it's beyond incredible how the homosexuals rose to a force to be reckoned with in such a short period of time. Even more odd though, is this transgender nonsense. They are being protected and fought for as if they are some new species that just recently landed on planet earth. I just can't wrap my brain around the fact that even one single human being takes this at all seriously, even going so far as to referring to a man as a she, and a woman, a he, simply because they choose to identify with the opposite gender? Then, to top it all off, many are claiming to be neither male nor female, ze, zir, non-binary, etc., and they're being recognized as such. What a time to be alive in.
Bitter Chris, over and out...ha-ha, what a joke.

It seems as if the people are being told what to think, rather than how to think, they are not allowed to challenge a belief or a worldview, they are not getting an education, they are being indoctrinated.

In this day and age, we must pray that our love for our fellow man will overcome our fear of being rejected by them, let us be light that shines to glorify God.

She (the professor) is his employee and she is meant to be teaching Christianity, not her leftist world view.
Christians used to be Salt and Light, now some seem more interested in being nice and non-offensive.
If the salt lose its saltiness.......
Something like this occurred several years ago at Princeton. There was only one male in the class "Antiquities."

To the point: it was elevated to the Dean who decided to speak his view openly in the student square. Unfortunately, he only confessed that he was coming out of the closet.

Who says that our children need lower education in order to make a living. And why do we need so much materialism anyway?

Well except that this fellow was probably disrespectful to his professor, I don’t know how we can say he did something wrong. If we put ourselves in his shoes, what would we have done; not speak out, speak more respectfully? To me this just shows how far discrimination goes. The subject matter that was discussed is an extremely important subject to believers and it is one of the main reasons we are seeing the destruction of the Christian faith; political correctness and loving the world. I remember once in college a professor spoke out against Christianity and I kept quiet. Who was more right, me or this fellow? IMO, he clearly was.

I don’t know anything about this student’s Christian thoughts, but it appears to me that he sort of wimped out when threatened with not receiving his diploma. If his issue was with free speech, then that is also a form of political correctness.

If he is a Christian, then I believe God is pleased with what he did. If not, then God was not impressed in the slightest. For a Christian, it is better to speak out even inappropriately than to not speak out at all.

There are only two sexes, isn’t it words that poses genders? But when we redefine things how we choose there is no limit to our insanity.

Anybody who believes there is transgender sex is living in fantasy land and denying the scientific evidence that there are only 2 sexes.

You have a good point, YIA. Perhaps this is more about classroom behavior than claiming a particular viewpoint. Agree, too, that IUP is a tough o e to turn, but the head on tactic but this student isn't working. It reminds of Moses who originally set out to lead the Israelites and killed a man to protect one of them. Moses tried it under his own authority. The Lord eventually gave him the earthly responsibility for His people but not until 40 years had passed after that initial try.

The article didn't really comment on the students attitude toward the teacher:
- refusal to stop talking out of turn
- telling a teacher he would get a low score because she hates his worldview

Obviously if you're attending a secular post modern university in liberal arts you kind of expect it to be on the extremely liberal.

The student says he has hopes of changing this university, but it's like asking the Mafia to change their ways. They can't, they are rooted in their convictions, and you can't stop anyone from doing what they love, even if it is sin, we don't have that kind of power.
